Morecambe postman hits the jackpot

A POSTMAN has been delivered some amazing news – he’s won more than £80,000 on the Lottery!

Darren Archer matched five numbers plus the bonus ball to scoop £82,573 on the Lotto draw and is now taking his family, wife Ellen and three children, on holiday.

Darren, from Morecambe, found out he had won after checking his numbers on TV 24 hours after the draw.

He said: “It all feels very surreal and the fact we have won is still sinking in.

“The first thing we will spend the money on is a family holiday as we have never been away together before.

“We have not decided where we will go as yet but it is going to be special.”
